I've noticed that the word "curvy" seems to have changed meanings in our society. When I hear it, I think of Scarlett Johanson, Jennifer Hudson (way she is now), Sofia Vergara, Marilyn Monroe, etc. Even Miley Cyrus is curvy, & she isn't considered thick (which isn't bad just different). To me, curvy=body shape, not weight.
Now, its seems like a more polite way to refer to someone who has more to love, not necessarily hour-glass. I'm not at all trying to say which body is best or say skinny/heavy is bad, but I just want to know:
When you describe a girl as curvy, or someone tells you she's curvy, when do you know that it's "curvy hour-glass shape" that is meant, and not overweight? Does it depend on the tone or something? Or do you assume it means a person is unflatteringly overweight?

For me curvy would mean a Scarlett Johanson type of figure. Hour glass.
Curvy is definitely a good thing!6
